Correlation Between Poverty & Bad Teeth

Correlation Between Poverty & Bad Teeth

Did you know that one of the major sources of tooth loss in adults is childhood poverty? There are many adults today who grew up in circumstances where good dentistry was simply unaffordable.

If you combine poverty with poor nutrition and inadequate dental hygiene, you now have a formula for future tooth loss from decay and gum disease. And if poverty continues into adulthood, with only minimal dental care available, it is hardly surprising that adults as young as those in their twenties may be condemned to spend the rest of their adult life with dentures.

Of course, one of the problems for people who are impoverished is that they simply don’t have the information they need to make the best choices. For example, if you mother and your grandmother both had dentures at an early age, it might be natural that you might assume that was your only option for tooth loss, and there are many people who have even had healthy teeth removed because of poverty or lack of quality information.

If your mouth is showing signs of gum disease (bleeding gums) or if you’re experiencing tooth loss or pain, there is still hope for you to have a healthy mouth. You may be able to save some or all of your teeth with the right treatment. And if you have lost many teeth, or if your teeth are in pain, there is still hope to have a bright smile in the future, and at a price you can afford.
